Sadly, I didn't catch on to the whole Burn-In process before I started watching my new Vizio P42HDTV. It has been used for about 25 or so hours off and on at various levels of programming (bars on top/bottom and sides for extended preiods). Even more sadly, I had the contrast and brightness turned up kinda high to meet with some suggested settings. I am not seeing a hint of PQ degredation, thankfully. Turned down the contrasts and brightness and will run this at night (work from home so I can't not watch it during the day :P ) untill I hit 100 hours.
Is this the best route, or have I possibly already screwed myself?
I assume that since I am not seeing any PQ issues, I am fine.
